The palace has a special museum for children, where kids can learn about the historic court through interactive exhibits and dress-up fun.

Kids will also love the special fairy-tale garden within the extensive palace grounds. Pretty gardens known as the Blühendes Barock surround the palace on three sides and Baroque features are incorporated into the landscape’s design.
